Russert, Shrum, Murphy and Polling Data

From page 324 of Bob Shrum’s latest book, “No Excuses”:

    Tim Russert called me with more bad news: the second wave of exit polls was holding for Bradley. We were going to lose. What were we going to do? I could hear the excitment in his voice — not because he was against Gore but because he loves a good political fight.”

Back in 2000, Howie Kurtz also reported that Russert gave polling data to McCain strategist Mike Murphy.

You could see the gang all together on yesterday’s “Meet the Press.”
